Trident Racing Budapest Qualifying Report

Hungaroring

While just five days have passed from the latest round at the Nurburgring, Trident Racing was back on-track today at the Hungarian Budapest racetrack, hosting the seventh round of the 2011 GP2 Main Series. Qualifying was held today, as Stefano Coletti cruised to 15th place and Rodolfo Gonzalez ended up in 26th.

The Hungarian racetrack's configuration didn't help in the attempt to run a clean session, and traffic has been one of the key elements in jeopardizing the team's effort. Both drivers of Trident Racing will face some comeback races tomorrow, with the goal of improving their position before race 2.

The first race of the weekend, set to start at 15:40 on a 39-lap distance, will take place tomorrow, with live coverage in Italy by RAI Sport 1. Race 2, set on a shorter, 28-lap distance, will take-off at 10:35 on Sunday.

Stefano Coletti, 15th (1’31”229)

“Today the biggest problem for me has been the oversteer that plagued my car's handling over the session, and then I was forced to abort my flyer twice because I was blocked by the slowing car of Adam Carrol. I hope for a better luck on tomorrow's race 1.”

Rodolfo Gonzalez, 25th (1’31”779)

“Right after getting on-track I found a pretty good overall feel with the car. Then I ended up spinning, and made my way back to the pit-lane. At that point, we did some set-up modifications, but the results weren't the ones we did expect. I started to experience a tough understeering condition, and I couldn't improve my previous fastest lap with the second set of new tires.
